Chan King-yin clinched Hong Kong's first-ever men's windsurfing gold medal when he won the mistral lightweight competition at the Asian Games in Doha yesterday. With the final two races scheduled for today, Chan, who has won all seven races so far, has already laid claim to the title, no matter where he finishes today. The gold medal came as a timely birthday present for Chan, who will turn 24 on Wednesday. And this is also the fifth gold medal for the SAR squad, equalling the record they set at the Bangkok Games in 1998. 'Yes, this is a good birthday present,' said Chan. 'I would like to thank my coaches, family and my teammate, Cheng Kwok-fai. I would like to share this honour with him.' Chan, who also won a bronze medal at the last games in Pusan, said he would use his HK$250,000 prize (awarded to all Hong Kong athletes who win a gold medal at the games) for his wedding, scheduled for December next year. A lack of wind forced organisers to call off all three races yesterday, leaving Chan with the title. Hong Kong coach Rene Appel, who first took charge of the SAR squad for the 1990 Asian Games in Beijing, said: 'Over the years, we have established a very strong programme and kept producing medal winners. First in the women's and now we've done it in the men's.' Lee Lai-shan won gold in Bangkok and Pusan, while Sam Wong Tak-sum, San San's husband, won silver in Hiroshima in 1994 and Bangkok. Hong Kong should capture two more medals when the windsurfing event finishes today. In the men's mistral heavyweight, Ho Chi-ho is currently second with 11 penalty points, three more than leader Yao Xinhao of China. In the women's event, Chan Wai-ki and Chen Lina of China are contesting the gold with both on nine penalty points.
